Regardless of whether your home has a more modern or classic style, there's one thing that almost every homeowner loves, lots of windows.
Windows can be one of the most appealing features of a home, providing natural light, architectural detail, and beauty. What better way to boost the functionality of such a key piece of your home, than to add motorized or automated shades to your windows? More than just offering privacy and black-out options for home theaters, window shades help improve your home's energy efficiency.
Believe it or not, adding blinds and shades to your home is a quick way to 'go green' in your every day living! Keeping windows covered during certain times of the day or year can significantly reduce energy costs. Blinds and shades help keep the heat inside your home during the chilly winter months and keep it from entering during steamy summer days. You can even cut back on summertime heat gain by up to 40%. Put that money saved toward improving your home decor or adding that new movie projector to the 'man cave'.
Not only shades and blinds save on your energy bill but they also work to protect fabrics and artwork from damaging UV rays without preventing you from enjoying the outdoor views. And one of the most popular uses of automated shades is within home theaters. If you're completely in love with the idea of having your own personal theater, but don't want to limit what you can do with your space, adding automated blackout curtains can turn a heavily windowed room into the perfect home theater, without limiting the room'sÂ versatility.
Atlanta's Digital Interiors offers a variety of shade controls from industry leaders like Lutron
and can program shade controls to adjust to time of day, season, and even your own personal schedule. Call today
to learn more about our automated shade options and start 'living green' and loving your home even more than you already do.
